Sprout Clout 2017

After our first “Sprout Clout” last year, we hope members will attend the 2017 Sprout Clout, Saturday December 30th 2017 at the field. Like last year there will be sprouts galore to win……bet you cant wait. There will be three distances, male, female and junior. For anyone who may not know, instead of a flag we attach a stalk of sprouts to the clout pole . And if that is not enough excitement, sprouts are randomly scattered within the circle, all for the winning. More details to follow...

Success At Burton Constable 2015

David Reaney Leads from the Front with Four-Trophy Success At Burton Constable Shoot   Sunday 2nd August 2015, Archers of East Riding hit the road again to take part in the Annual East Riding Invitation Competition hosted by Burton Constable Company of Bowmen. With a good turn out from both juniors and seniors and quite favourable weather, hopes of a good trophy haul were high. Shooting an American round comprising of 2.5 dozen arrows each at 60, 50 and 40 yards the seniors certainly performed well, especially David Reaney with quadruple success. Not to be out done the juniors performed equally as well shooting Western rounds according to age, with Niamh Titchener achieving a County Record score.

Junior National Outdoor Archery Championships 2015

Junior National Outdoor Archery Championships 2015

Sophie Joyce, Niamh Titchener and Ed Wallace all of Archers of East Riding Juniors travelled to Lilleshall last weekend to compete in the Junior National Outdoor Championships hosted by Archery GB. The weather might have interrupted proceedings especially on the Sunday with thunder storms and lightening but it could not affect the high quality of the shooting. With 70 targets and over 250 Archers this was by far the biggest tournament our junior Archers had taken part in. Shooting Fita rounds on Saturday and Bristol rounds on the Sunday with distances of 60 metres for Sophie and Ed and 30 metres for Niamh, distance dependent on age. All performed very well attaining creditable scores and finishing positions against some very experienced Archers from all over the country. Our junior archers will be submitting their scores taken from Fita or Bristol tournaments this year with the hope of being selected to represent Yorkshire in the upcoming Five Counties Tournament to be hosted by Archers of East Riding in October, their performance at Lilleshall will certainly help toward that goal.
